Great show and Brent just tears these two shows up! Listen to Aiko!
Uncle>Mexicali And Music Never Stopped are kind of slow, I like it.
Another epic Hartford Morning Dew, I don't know why but they just brought it just about everytime in Hartford.

hartford's last stand
the 2 night run was very nice seeing as though it would be the last at the famous mall in downtown hartford. Looks like the boys are still soundchecking Shakedown but things get going after that.
early 80's meltdown -

You know its a killer 2 things right off the bat. Spring 90 and Hartford. Brent goes off with his moaning and groaning while rippin his keyboard solo and Jerry comes in with some psychedelic action.
That Dew as mentioned is a monster and so sweet. Friend Of The Devil,Ramble on Rose and yea that Foolish that had some stand out review was right on. These 2 nights song for song were blow outs. I like those Nassau's but like someone mentioned a little to produced sounding. This Spring tour before Brent died was another huge peak in Dead history. The 2-26 27-Oakland, Landover, Nassau, Knicker, Copps, Atlanta and Hartford all sick stuff coming off a big 89 tour.
I love early 80's but 89-to summer 90 was the the shit even over 70's. A year and a half packed with some of the best Dead ever.

This is the only show I got shut out of. It's a good one too. The Shakedown rocks but is mostly the AUD patch, as is Rooster, and half of Stagger Lee. I disagree with the guy below that this is the best run of Spring 90. It's certainly worth DLing and listening to, both of the Hartford shows are, the majority of this tour is. The super-unique end-of-song Eyes jam of the next night is critical required listening for sure. That is some heavy shit, like Pat Matheny Band on microdots.

My first and only Dead show. What a great experience! Second to last time the band played in Hartford.
Listening to this brings back those fond memories of the show.
As other reviewers have noted, a very good Morning Dew!!

The boys just tour the East Coast up that spring. Every show was pretty much a standout. Hartfort was a very hectic scene. Very tough ticket. I snuck in one of the nights. Sorry GDP. Nice first set. Lot a great tunes well played. Second set is hot. Mornig Dew Worth the Download alone.

This was the first show in Hartford, 1990. This is the best recording I have heard. Healy had some problems during Shakedown and did not correct them until Stagger Lee. The second set is the best part anyway. Listen to Morning Dew. It was the best Dew done in 1990.

Best Morning Dew of the Brent Era - Period.
The sound is a little screwy for Shakedown at the beginning and again in the middle oddly enough - otherwise the recording is great quality and without a doubt a fantastic show.
Phil's bass play during the solo of Dew is unreal and Brents organ work on the final build up is incredible - he practically drowns out Jerry, but it still is incredible, a must have. At the very least, get this Dew, completely mind blowing.

the audience splice makes the shakedown unbearable, id look for another 1st if cant find one then go for it
